    This movie was awful. Although I have to say it was well made.

    Hmm, weird. :eek1: It's great news if true.

    I wonder which studio is supposed to be releasing it though? It's a little strange that there's no other news about it anywhere else.

    Man, I'd love to dump my old VHS. Anyone else have any info on this? Scorpion/Scream keeping something from us?

    I'm all over this when this comes out:banana: Sounds like it may be Scream Factory because of the Blu/dvd combo pack but I'm just guessing. Either way sold homie!!:evil:

    Wasn't Dark Sky Films/MPI supposed to release this about 4 - 5 years ago?

    Please let this be legit. I was super disappointed when Dark Sky decided to release Bonnie's Kids over Death Spa before closing up shop.

    "Death Spa" on Blu-ray?!? :eek:

    After 8 years, the format has reached the point when stuff like THIS is finally released. Hope more trash like this pops up on BD during the coming years. Almost feels like being back in the VHS era again :D

    Pre-Ordered!!

    I hated the trailer for this, with a passion. It completely disturbed me, and that does not happen very often.

    Anyway, saw it and was more than pleasantly surprised. It's cheap and there are an insane amount of logic farts but it's incredibly entertaining. I highly recommend checking it out if you come across a copy.

    Dark Sky never closed shop, they just said they were going to focus more on releasing features. They distributed both Ti West's latest outputs as well as Frankenstein's Army which was their most recent release. Death Spa was always on their agenda to release, but why it took this long, I have no idea.

    Either way, it may be a blessing in disguise. If they released Death Spa when they had originally planned, I doubt it would have been on blu ray. Now we get to see that gorgeously neon lit devil spa in glorious HD! I cannot wait!

    I fucking love this film. I watch the VHS at least once every couple of months. Its one of those movies that can only exist in the 80's.

    Maybe MPI/Dark Sky will start releasing catalog stuff again and this one is just the first one out of the gate after the hiatus. Horror is "in" again judging by all the upstart labels popping up and movies like Satan's Blade and Hellhole making their debuts on high-def. I guess this means the recession is over :)

    DeathSpa is my most anticipated release this year. It should look absolutely gorgeous...I mean it looked stunning on VHS with all its neon colors and such...I can only imagine what it will look like in HD.

    Very nice to see MPI resurrecting Gorgon. I always hoped they would after they stuck the logo on the House of the Dead clamshell. I am eagerly anticipating what else MPI will release under the Gorgon moniker.
